Sedo has made and paid out parked money for me using the Paypal option. You do need to setup payment and finish the fine options or you will not receive or see any parking cash/funds.
The key to Sedo parking actually paying out a decent return is:
- *Taking the undeveloped back burner or a newly purchased domain and place it for sale on Sedo.
- *FILL OUT ALL forms and configurations for it and optimize it to at least 3 bars with setting "buy it now" at $9999.00 or something.
- *DO NOT Park it, but instead install a heavy CMS and direct the domain to this CMS.
- *Go through all the regular mundane website start up motions making sure Google sees it and preferably other Search Engines also.
- *Slap your Adsense Ads and some affiliate links (FYI Sedo ads I feel are good to use).
- *Stroke and choke it for 3 or 4 months doing the routine minimum with SEO, making sure it is online and has at least some content of your own posted on it.
- *Connect, really cool to connect it with existing accounts, it to as many social networks as possible and liking, friending, digging, pitching every website change you do.
- *If you can find it in you to actually do and remember to blog about once a week and when I mean blog I mean anything with a topic that it understandable, and if you could even find it within you to put up some articles about current events in your words along with a couple pages of syndication, this would help huge with earning in the end.
Now, give the domain around 3 to 6 months to soak out on the web and just maybe it could become a domain which you would never park and actually make income with. This happening will depend on the effort you put into the domain during those 3 to 6 months. If it bails out in the real world and once the domain starts to becomes a real hassle and bore because it will just not holdits own, boom
, this is when you should park it on Sedo.
While it is parked at Sedo keep the directories/files and database intact and in place with your CMS and simply direct the domain to Sedo name servers. Just keep an eye on your visits and clicks in your Sedo CP and once they start to drop off (may never take off or take off with a bang and never stop) or you have noticed that your indexed webpages no longer show or have dropped down to nothing when Google searching “site:your-junk-domain-with-illgal-characters-in-it.com”, pull the domain back out into the real world and stroke and choke it for a while and repeat.
Nothing in life is free and the ".com" era has been over for some time. Any new or undeveloped domain will need more than just parking it to make anything more than recouping the annual registration fee.
On the other hand, parking a domain and listing it for sale is doing it way more good than having it point to a your host's or registrar's monotonized, or your blank server 500/Apache, indexing killer page.
